During the exodus of the Israelites, they reached the Red Sea and discovered Pharoah's army in pursuit. It appeared hopeless; at that instance God parted the sea so they could cross into safety.
Are you facing a defining moment in your life? is Pharoah's army of distress keeping you from crossing the sea deliverance?
If so, "don't look at the world you will be distressed, don't look within yourself you will be depressed, look to Jesus and you will find rest." (quoted from Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life)
One of the first things an individual should consider is not to resist a defining moments because they are life changing.
